The possibility of obtaining grants or allocations from other sources will be pursued as warranted by future planning. Personal donations to Dummerston Cares are welcome and appreciated, and may be made through by mailing a check to: Dummerston Cares, Inc., PO Box 302, West Dummerston, VT 05357
The implementation of all programs and services depends entirely on volunteers from the community. We have ongoing need for volunteers in any capacity, from assisting with to leadership and coordination of new and existing programs and services. Students seeking community service credit are especially welcome. Anyone who would like to volunteer to help in any way, should call the Helpline or talk with a member of the Board of Directors.
One thing becoming increasingly clear in Cares programs is that volunteers who help and support others in some way benefit as much from what they give as do those they serve.
